Host a Back to School Brunch for Moms

If you’re a new parent at school or just want to meet some more moms, host a back to school brunch this September to have everyone meet! Check out these tips and refreshments for how to make your brunch fun filled and enjoyable for all.

This time of year, the smell of neighbors barbecuing gives way to the aroma of fresh notebooks and sharpened pencils in the air. While it’s sad to send your little ones back to school, it leaves you some free time to get together with other mothers. Catch up and swap stories with some new and old friends by hosting a back-to-school brunch for moms to meet! Everyone will appreciate the effort and these goodies are sure to be a huge hit.

  • DIY Place Cards

    These apple envelopes are so adorable and versatile! When hosting a back to school mom’s brunch, try using these decorated envelops as place cards. They fit the theme perfectly and all you need to do is choose who sits where. Throw a pencil inside these bags to have guests prepared to play some fun games as well.

  • Fresh Zucchini Muffins

    Zucchinis are abundant during the summertime! While summer winds down and your little ones are heading back to school, serve up these delicious fresh zucchini muffins at your brunch. Top these muffins off with a dollop of cream cheese frosting and you have a scrumptious back-to-school treat that moms will love.

  • Cherry Punch Cocktail

    This sweet and simple cocktail is the perfect drink to toast the new school year. All you need is sparkling white wine (or lemonade if you’re making a mocktail), cherry juice and fresh lemon juice. So simple and you're left with a delicious cherry punch cocktail!  

  • Lavender Cordial

    This lavender cordial is the perfect drink to glam up your back-to-school brunch. This non-alcoholic drink is a mix of flower and fruit infused water, something completely different that will surprise the moms attending!

  • Mocha Shot

    This rich espresso drink will have any mother up and awake as soon as she arrives for brunch. It is the perfect kind of shot because you can take it early in the morning…and it’s mixed with chocolate! Mothers will love this decadent mocha shot so much they’re going to want the recipe.

  • Table Games for Back-to-School Moms

    If you’re planning to host a back-to-school brunch you’ll probably see some familiar faces as well as some new moms stopping by. To break the ice with those more nervous parents, play a few table games! Some games aren’t just for the kids anymore. Try setting up a back-to-school bingo game for your guests and have them create their own boards.
